I know zj mentioned it didn't have a ton of glide earlier in the thread, but compared to what I normally throw this held up well.

If I can find one around 170 I plan on picking it up to see if it acts any differently.

I finally got out to throw the Bandit. Mine is 175g and is a missle. I really liked how it holds a very long straight flight with a very subtle turn into the later part of its flight and that gentle fade back to straight. It didn't turn like the Valkyrie does but and has far superior glide. I really only threw it twice due to playing Sedgley but it was on two uphill shots where I wanted it to go straight and then break to the right a bit and fade back left. I am definitely digging this disc and will be getting a lighter one to compliment the heavier Bandit. Great job Steve R. and the other owners of Legacy...You made another winner.

If I said it didn't have a lot glide then I misspoke. I think I was just commenting that a run with a taller dome would have more glide. These Bandits are super duper flat

What do you think the difference would be in flight paths between a 175g Bandit and a 169g or 170g Bandit? I currently have a 175g Bandit and it flies dead nuts straight and then it breaks a little to the right (about 10' to 15' ) and then just fades right back to where it started dead nuts straight. If I got a 169g or 170g do you think that movement to the right will be greater?

What color did you get? When I compared them all the red and white seemed to be the most stable. Blue and purple looked to be the easiest to flip/turn

I originally picked up 2 and decided to just keep 1 in the bag. The Bandit is great for easy flips that need side to side movement and big rollers. It has a place in the bag but I treat it as a specialty disc like my FB

Yeah I would put the bandit close to a -3, maybe a -2.5. Not more than a SW but somewhat close. It is definitely more of a hyzer flip disc in shape, where the SW discs excels at flat turnovers

My 175g is white. Do you think it would be a smart move to get a light weight Bandit to compliment the more stable version?
